Operation

Turn the drive mode select switch to the ECO position. ECO appears in the vehicle information display for 2 seconds and the ECO drive indicator light illuminates on the instrument panel.

When the accelerator pedal is depressed within the range of economy drive, the ECO drive indicator light illuminates in green. When the accelerator pedal is depressed above the range of economy drive, the color of the ECO drive indicator light changes to orange. For ECO pedal system equipped models see ECO pedal system in this section.

The ECO drive indicator light will not illuminate in the following cases:

● When the shift selector is in the R (Reverse) position.
● When the vehicle speed is below 3 MPH (4.8 km/h) or over 90 MPH (144 km/h).
● When the Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) system (if so equipped) is operated.

ECO pedal system

Helps assist the driver to improve fuel economy by increasing the reaction force of the accelerator pedal. When the ECO drive indicator light is blinking or turns orange, the ECO pedal system increases the reaction force of the accelerator pedal.

When the ECO drive indicator illuminates in green, the accelerator reaction force is normal.
